In some cases, a plumbing emergency is going to be pretty darn obvious—say, if you have water gushing out of a pipe in your kitchen and have no idea how to shut off the water to make it stop. In other cases though, the signs are a little less subtle (or maybe not that severe yet), and you might hold off on calling a plumber. This could end up being a huge mistake on your part.
The fact of the matter is by the time a plumbing problem presents itself, it may be at the point that you’ve already wasted a lot of water, and subsequently money. Plus, you may have water damage in areas of your home you don’t even know about. So what warrants an emergency plumbing call?
